First photo of 2014 (pay no attention to the clock in the back; we have yet to change the time on it), Phantom as always. Kitty is very offended by the smell of beer.

My first day of the year wasn’t all that exciting and even felt somewhat gloomy thanks to the overcast skies. It’s supposed to start snowing again tonight, so that means that the drive to work in the morning wont be very fun and very cold.

Today wasn’t all a loss though, I did get a few things done that needed to be done and also changed and registered my domain. My handle here and other places has been moecona for a few years now, but I felt that, the blog at least, needed a change and this one is a bit more personal to me. Aside from that, my roommate installed my new graphics card for me, so my computer is running a lot smoother than it was. It was starting to get impossible to play many games or go on any site that had flash without it crashing. So far, I’m happy with it!

This weekend, if I’m not having to work OT, I’ll be working on my layout. I meant to have that done before today, but with the computer crashing so much, I didn’t want to take a chance on losing any editing work.

Stopping here for now so that I can watch more of The Twilight Zone marathon before I have to go to bed, so good night! I hope everyone had an enjoyable start to the new year.

2013

Happy New Year!

Looking back, 2012 was a rough year, but it wasn’t completely terrible for me. It was more of a frustrating year than a plain bad one.

Though, it did end on a sad note for my roommate and her family with her grandmother’s passing in the early morning of New Year’s Eve. I’m trying to do what I can to help, but I’m terrible at this sort of thing, even with my own family. The good thing is that she was able to live out one more year and spend every holiday with her family and she passed away surrounded by loved ones. With that, I think she’s able to rest in peace.

I say it every year, but this year I want to make sure to update a lot. I usually get behind because of how busy my job gets and I end up too tired to do much when I come home, but this year I’m not going to let my job wear me out anymore. My focus is going to be on me this year to better myself and keep myself healthy. I don’t want to be this negative, stressed out, and unhealthy person that my job has caused me to become.

That said, here’s to making 2013 better than 2012~!
